Vision: to incarnationally care and shepherd young people through relationships on their journey of faith with Christ.

Huddle: A chill environment to have fun, explore the Bible, laugh together, and grow in relationships. We meet on Tuesday nights from 7:00-9:00 pm. Currently, we are meeting at 368 Washington Avenue, Downingtown, PA. In August, we will most likely be meeting at our church building at 430 Hannum Avenue in West Chester.

Re-Opening with Covid-19:

Please see the following Q&A's for any concerns regarding Covid-19 and the precautions we are taking as a ministry. If you have any questions not answered below, please email  .


Is it required for me to wear a mask to any High School program, event, or Bible study?

To follow and respect the latest order from the PA state government we ask that you make sure your child brings a mask to every HS program they attend. 

What precautions is the High School Ministry taking to protect from the spread of the Corona Virus?

  • We will continue to meet outside for the month of June and July (weather permitting).
  • Any games we play will not include any physical contact. We will also be limiting the number of games that could transfer viruses. (No bobbing for apples for a while). 
  • We will be encouraging social distancing practices. Our volunteers have been instructed to limit physical contact to an elbow bump. 
  • Any snack we serve will be single-serve. 
  • Handwashing or the use of antibacterial hand sanitizer will be available. 
  • For any teaching time or small-group time, we will spread kids out to be six-feet apart.

What kind of disinfectant will you be using?

Standard brand Clorox and Lysol wipes for cleaning and Purell hand sanitizer for students and volunteers.

Should I let my kid come if they have any symptoms?

If your child has any of the symptoms outlined by the CDC here https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html. Then please have your child remain at home until 2 weeks have passed where they are A-symptomatic.

When you meet in the building, what will change?

We will still be taking all of the precautions outlined above in the last question. However, we will also be ensuring that surfaces are cleaned with disinfectant before any students arrive on Tuesday nights.

Parent Partnership:

At Providence, our desire is to come alongside parents and partner with them in their integral role in the lives of their children. If you are a parent, you are the most influential person in your child’s life. And we pray we can aid you in any way possible on that journey.

Please check out the resources below for parenting resources as well as trending information on youth ministry which we believe could be helpful.

We firmly believe in Young Life’s phenomenal ministry at High School’s in the West Chester and Downingtown area. If there is a Young Life presence at their high school, we encourage students to dive into the flourishing ministry. We believe Young Life offers students a powerful avenue to reach their own friends with the Gospel of Jesus Christ as well as grow deeper in their own faith.

Please take some time to watch this short video on the monumental impact Young Life has had on students.
